Safety

The Highpointers Club Newsletter publishes a Safety article in each quarterly issue.  Some are part of a series, while others are part of member stories.  If you have a safety story you would like to share with the club, please send to newsletter@highpointers.org

From this menu page, we will add new safety content.  Highpointing can be a dangerous and strenuous activity. Be sure to prepare yourself for each highpointing trip. Whether it be physical conditioning and training for the technical climbs or a tune up and an oil change for your car.

Always plan carefully and be prepared for anything that may happen. Keep up with weather conditions and adjust properly. There are many books available on travel, hiking, camping, mountaineering and everything else that goes along with Highpointing. The more technical climbs can be made with the services of professional guides. There are also schools and training courses that can train you on the ups and downs of climbing. (No pun intended) Get the knowledge, be prepared, and drive safely. Visit the Highpointers Club Merc for potential resources!
